What is melanin skin tone?
Melanin is the pigment that creates our skin tone. There are two different types: eumelanin and pheomelanin. Eumelanin creates browner hues, while Pheomelanin is responsible for reddish colors. People with darker skin tones and hair colors may have more Eumelanin, and redheads might have some extra Pheomelanin.
What are the colors of melanin?
Melanin is brown, non-refractile, and finely granular with individual granules having a diameter of less than 800 nanometers. This differentiates melanin from common blood breakdown pigments, which are larger, chunky, and refractile, and range in color from green to yellow or red-brown.
What gives skin its Colour?
